    Hmmm. I'm liking it somewhat, but the lack of being able to sit at different angles is a bit of a turn off in my opinion. Especially for 100 bucks. Shortly after I bought my case for my 12.9, I saw one on Amazon that looked nicer and cost less.
    How about just being careful with it and see what comes out in the next month. :)

    I just went and looked closer and it does have 2 different angles. So my bad. Still you could see what comes out in the next month.

    I like those as well as the Pad & Quill offerings. I'm debating between them at the moment.

    I had the Pad and Quill oxford for the 12.9 from when the original came out for about a year. I loved it, it looks wonderful, and it is unique. But: very heavy and bulky compared to a simple Smart Cover.

    Simple advice. You can find better products for less. However, if you are stuck on this one: Charcoal

    Not a fan of that elastic band to keep this case closed... For $100, does not seem very durable at that price. I think it is worth for paying for $30 more for Apple's expensive sleeve which is also too expensive.

    Do I really need to cite specific examples? Are you both defending $100 as a reasonable price?

    The best case I ever had was the rooCase 360 $35 but its not yet available for the new pro.

    Get on Amazon or eBay, plenty of less expensive offerings.

    I bought this one for now:

    The sleeve might be one of the greatest ripoffs Apple has ever sold. $130 for what looks like about $10 worth of materials. It is nice looking, I will give you that but how much protection is really there?

    Hard to say but I have not felt that sleeves are made for protection since they are made for fashion which is not my style.

    Have you received your temp case and ipad 10.5" to review? That case does not look bad for a temp case.

    Yes, specific examples are helpful and constructive versus your first post which was neither.

    Pad & Quill is a U.S. company employing Americans who are making these cases. They also have a 95% rating with almost 10,000 feedback.

    Often (not always) cheap is cheap. Both Amazon and eBay are flooded with cheap Chinese crap and/or knockoffs.

    Wa...wait a minute... how in the heck does it hold the flap in place here...???



    It's very pretty and doesn't rely on the little flap on the back to hold it upright like Sena used to.

    No. This is a full coverage case--not just a cover.
